This week kicked off Lake Poway’s March Madness competition and the week started off hot. 1,500 pounds of Trophy Tailwalkers were stocked Wednesday and the trout fishing was great. The prize for biggest fish goes to Carlos Castro!
Friday Carlos reeled in an eight-pound catfish! He was using salmon for bait and he was fishing the east side of the log boom. He also reeled in a seven-pound fish earlier in the day. Carlos is Lake Poway regular who caught and released a 35 pound catfish last August.
Honorable mention goes to Richard Washington who hooked a 6.5-pound Tailwalker, and Roberto Najera who caught a 6-pound Tailwalker.
March Madness at Lake Poway continues through the end of the month with great prizes awarded for the biggest fish each week. Each week in March there will be prizes for the biggest fish of any type caught. The competition is open to all ages. Fish must be weighed and recorded at the boat dock. See our website for details. https://poway.org/401/Lake-Poway.
